The Project TavernMaker is a free random generator for taverns in pen&paper RPGs. Both graphic and text output will be generated. The program is TEAMware which means it is free, but users have to register by contribution to the project.
Note: Sadly the originator of this news chose to remain anonymous, but maybe he will return at some time and join us as a forum member.
The screenshots already avaiable at the website look promising and imho you should at least take a look.

Tales by TerishD : Curse of a Home: VI|
Posted by TerishD on Saturday, June 19, 2004 (04:04:54) (726 reads) 6 comments |
The crew of the Ibis did not know the reason for their situation, but many prayed understanding the peril that was upon them. They had every reason however to expect their prayers to be heard. Living on a world where only great works caused the gods to learn one's name, the crew had every right to expect that their names were presently being indelible written on some divine text. They achieved next to the impossible.
Our heroes start to directly face the problems at hand.

A soldier saw a movement of tan colored fur, and released his hold on the bowstring. A roar sounded as a female lion felt the cut of the edge of an arrowhead. The animals did not charge, feeling no need to attack a potentially fatal foe. They only moved back to what they felt was a safe distance from which they could wait for a more opportune moment to close.
Jackal rode back enough where those left at the caravan could hear him. The officer bellowed that they had indeed noticed the great cats, but felt certain that they were only coming to the smell of the carcasses and not to finish what had been started. Neither the baron or the major liked admitting that the lions would probably dig up the corpses, but the soldiers would do what they could and allow nature to do as it would once they had left.
Things start to become bad, very bad.

This new series in the Rules of the Game articles focuses on movement and all the questions that center around it, like:
Just what can you do while you're moving? How do you handle movement when it requires a skill check? What's the difference between having a swimming speed and making a Swim check?
This article focuses on tactical movement -- that is movement characters use during encounters. In Part One, we'll consider some basic definitions and other fundamentals of movement like encumberance.

Jackal could not help but turn his head with disgust at the scene. Some of the soldiers with him were unable to hold the contents of their stomachs. The nauseating sounds of the fluid erupting from their throats was enough extra solid data to the minds of others that a couple more stomachs suddenly needed to expel what they held.
The bodies of people and horses were ripped open in long ugly cuts from some strong monsters with hard talons or claws. They had not been eaten. The bodies were now infested with flies, but no scavengers had come to devour the remains. The wagons had been set on fire, so some corpses had the dignity of being cremated. Most of the remains were lying about however where they had attempted to fight or flee whatever had beset them.
Characters are finally moved into position for events to start escalating.
